typecasts and typewriter reviews
Yeah, it does take a little getting use to. For me, I'm not a big paper guy, meaning at work, I rarely print anything and just read everything on screen. Printing is associated with permanency and finality, so to type a draft...well, its taken me a while to be okay with that.Which means I have a drawer full of typings, most of which could probably get thrown out, but I'll end up keeping.
I use the back of printouts and junk faxes harvested from work. I've got a big box full of them, in fact:http://www.flickr.com/photos/mpclemens/2448679881/When one side is already a cast-off, suddenly it matters less what I put on the reverse. Or at least that's how I trick myself into thinking about it. Also, NaNoWriMo has taught me to embrace the typo. Typewriters are freed from their responsibilities as typesetters, as Richard just pointed out. Creation is a messy process, so it's OK for them to get a little messy in their new purely-creative lifestyle.
Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
